CVR Birthdays this Week!

Happy Birthday to: John Martin, Norm Robinson, Gavin Boyles, and Nina Aitken!


Hey, we’ve made it to the earliest sunsets for another year. We afternoon runners can all appreciate that sunset in Montpelier is now 4:11 pm from today until next Wednesday and then we start gaining some daylight. I’m afraid you morning runners have to wait until Dec 29-Jan 7 for your latest sunrise of 7:26 a.m. before you start heading the other way.

Wow! 17 people participated in the inaugural Saturday Winter Long Run of the series and a couple more showed up for post run refreshments. The best part is we had a distribution of ages 17-66 (almost, he turns 66 today) and practically filled La Brioche for an hour or so afterwards. The Saturday morning run for Dec 9 will be hosted by Beth Daut at 793 Crosstown Rd. in Berlin. Contact Beth for details and so she has an idea of how many want to run how far. Be there ready to run at 9:30.

Important Correction!!

Annual Volunteer and Series Awards Dinner, Thursday January 25 at the Steakhouse in Berlin. I apologize for the error last week.

Final 2017 CVR/ORS Series Results are now posted. 65 people remain after 35 non-volunteers disappeared, but only one person formerly winning is gone. An amazing coincidence is that we have 28 Females and 37 Males in this year’s final tally which appears to be exactly the same as in 2016. Note we call this final, but you have until Dec 15 to let us know of any corrections. If you disappeared and you did volunteer, please contact Jim Flint and/or the Race Director for whom you volunteered ASAP.

New Year’s Eve 5K

The Central Vermont Runners will once again host the annual New Year’s Eve 5K Road Race. This 15+ year tradition gives runners and their families yet one more way to ring in the New Year. The race course is challenging and not for the faint of heart. Starting on Court Street near the Pavilion State Office Building, the course is relatively flat for the first half mile, but then climbs uphill for the next mile, where runners get to turn around and run downhill to the finish.

Whether you are looking for a way to burn off those extra calories from the holidays, or start a 2018 New Year’s resolution, The Central Vermont Runners annual New Year’s Eve Road Race is the place to be on the afternoon of December 31st.
